There are beautiful outsides, and there are beautiful insides… and then there are people like Blake Mycoskie, who epitomize both to the extreme.

The entrepreneur from Texas was participating on ‘The Amazing Race’ when he visited Argentina and was struck by how many children didn’t have shoes.

Inspired, he took it into his own hands to create a shoe company that donates one pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased. And that, dear child, is how TOMS were created… and one incredible hunk was born.
